This arch, reminiscent of Rome, was built to honour the visit of Maria Teresa many years ago. But....it is on a quiet street in Vacs, so one would do a 'double take' when you see it. Very well kept and nicely painted.

Though this is on the list to see - don't go out of your way. It is what you see in the photos - and really nothing more. It is located next to a large prison adjacent to the Danube. Not a must see.

Another piece of Vac which is beautiful. If going to visit this, you would have walked by the huge prison.. We walked around the entire prison. Very interesting history there too. :)

There wasn't much traffic so I was able to use my tripod and take a time delayed photo with me in it!

It can be a great walk and when you are coming from the city it is not too far from the prison. Nice arch. But that's it.

The site is far away from the center. You are lost without a car. It is nice to take some photos there. Be careful of the traffic

Next to the prison which even increases the interest level of the visitors. We just passed under it but it looked great.

The only triumphal arch in Hungary. Nickname: Kőkapu (stone gate). Built for the visit of Maria Theresia, almost 300 years ago. Rather big, beautiful, totally renovated. Closed to the city centre, closed to the Danube. Must see.
